Foodie Friday

Well, I’m pleased to report that food for the last fortnight has been significantly improved. I’ve been feeling a LOT better and able to spend a lot more time in the kitchen. I’ve got a new focus on WELLNESS and being kind to myself. I put a video about this on YouTube and will write a post here very soon.

For now let’s get on with the food. I’m back to having green smoothies most days – they keep me full so much longer than anything else…

but I did also enjoy a veggie scramble…

and some oatmeal (with banana and maple syrup)…which I haven’t had in YEARS….

Lunch was pretty much a salad every day during the week….

Do you have a favourite healthy treat? If so, PLEASE share it with me :-).

Foodie Friday

Ready for some more food photos?Unfortunately, due to my sinus infection, I haven’t been spending a great deal of time in the kitchen and most meals have been quick and easy to prepare. I think I’m almost better so the next Foodie Friday should see more in the way of REAL FOOD!!!!

Breakfast surprisingly involved NO green smoothies. Instead there were LOTS of cheese & pineapple jaffles….

some toast with marmalade (and tea of course)….

IMG_5820.jpg

and scrambled eggs with cheese & salsa….

Lunches still remained mainly a salad…

but I enjoyed wedges for lunch one day (such an odd choice for me)….

and vegetable soup at the Sydney Opera House…

As you can see plenty of easy to make meals – relying a bit too much on packets. How do you cope with making dinner when you’re feeling unwell?
